Many of you have been asking me what exactly Pooh and I do. As much as I’d like to, I prefer not to reveal too much about my personal life – mainly, our day jobs. As strange as it may seem, Pooh and I are both Jacks of all trades and like to do many things! I have already mentioned in previous posts that Pooh is a Graphic Designer and is currently the Director of Advertising and Graphic Design at the company we work at. I would rather not say what I do there because it’d probably give too much away :) Anyway, aside from our day jobs, Pooh and I also do work on the side for extra $$$. Fortunately, these side jobs are jobs that we do because they’re jobs that we’re very passionate about.
Aside from being a graphic designer, Pooh is also a photographer and does photoshoots on our days off and after work. Most of his clients are dancers, models, and actors in need of headshots and portfolio material.
Aside from my day job, I am an artist. I’m setting up our garage as my studio but haven’t gotten it set up since we’ve been so busy. I hope some day to open my own gallery :)
Pooh and I also dabble in a very…interesting…job that we do on our spare time every now n’ then just for fun. I am sure some of you already know what I’m talking about :) Anyway, it’s not really that important.
Yes…theres more! Pooh and I also dance! No…not with a pole and in a thong…but professionally! Pooh and I used to be in DDO artist agency and went to auditions like crazy. I don’t have many videos of us…but heres one of our accomplishments. Unfortunately, there’s no dancing (o.O) Can you spot us?
Here’s one of us teaching Funkanometry SF’s Company class in San Francisco
Pooh and I used to dance full time and made a living from dancing, teaching, and choreographing. A year ago, the studio we taught at closed for relocation. Pooh and I had to find “real” jobs…er…day jobs until the studio reopened. Ugh! After a year of planning and funding, the new studio is in it’s final stages of construction and will be opening at the end of August. Today, Pooh and I visited the studio to see it’s progress.
I definitely can’t wait to get back into teaching. My only problem is that I’m really enjoying my dayjob at the moment. The people are sooooo great and the $$$ is REALLY good :) Maybe I can do everything? I dunno…I’ll guess I’ll just have to wait and see!
Anyway, after visiting our studio, we had to do another photoshoot. I really want to post some of the images because they came out really really really good! But I can’t unfortunately…but you can take my word for it (^_~)
Well, I hope I answered some of your questions…perhaps some day I’ll expatiate on our dancing. For now, a goodnight to all and to all a good night :) MMMM I’m stuffed!
